Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
Our focus in non-judgmental healing. We meet patients where they are and help them where they want to go, regardless of how fast or slow that may be. We help people get as healthy as they want to be using as many natural therapies as possible. If surgery or medication is ever needed we can refer and work with other healthcare providers allowing a true team effort in healing. Whether you are suffering from a chronic condition or just don't ever want to get sick, we can help in a variety of ways.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
As odd as it may sound, we specialize in the human body. Our goal is to get to the source of what is wrong. We don't treat the condition of the person but the person with the condition.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I wake up every day getting to do something I love. I grew up with many doctors in my family both MD's and holistic so I have seen both sides and know we can all work together. I'm proud of people that come in to see me as I know they want to get better and I am excited to help them in any way I can.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
Again, it will sound odd, but I love it all. I have worked with so many people with so many varying conditions and concerns. I research weekly as I feel its my duty to my patients to keep abreast of the research so I can help them in any way I can.
